(Here's what I'm up to around the web…)
Essays which echo the broader movement of progressive Christian writers and thought leaders—heralding a return to the empire-challenging social justice movement which was the hallmark of Jesus’ ministry and of his disciples.

Today’s the first day I’m wearing my new glasses (old ones broke!) while working on the computer…and it’s actually rather sunny out. The full effect is:
Major Happy Mood Time! 🤩
(which is a blessing because having to wear my prescription sunglasses everywhere, even indoors, was really making me feel depressed. So glad I can see normally once more!)
I don’t have time to do a whole write up, so here’s the gist of it: since I’m no longer using #Facebook to share family photos, I wanted to find a way to create a password-protected photo gallery. After some research, I tried out SmugMug. It works great! For only a few dollars a month, I can upload and present photos far more beautifully than I ever could on social media, it’s secure, and it’s ad-free. Simply perfect and just in time for the holidays. Now I can email or text the link & password to family and friends, and we’re off to the races. 👍
Now I know why The Martian movie was made. I finally got around to reading the original book, and holy cow is this a fun read. Not to mention very cinematic (almost like reading a screenplay). Can’t wait to watch the movie once again! #movies #scifi
My 36th birthday is coming up this month, and something I’ve been wanting to do for years is promote a fundraising campaign for charity: water. So that’s exactly what I’m doing! Your donation will directly help bring clean drinking water to communities around the world. 🙏🏻💜
Rewatched Blade Runner 2049 again last night…I hadn’t seen it since my first viewing in the theater (which was quite the experience). Good God I love this movie. As expected I picked up on a number of things during this subsequent viewing I hadn’t before. Of most interest to me are the biblical themes…for example, Officer K at the end is a type of Jesus figure. I’ll have to write more in a spoiler review some time! (Also, I enjoyed the movie soundtrack even more this time around…so-o-o good.) #scifi #movies
We are Google employees and we join Amnesty International in calling on Google to cancel project Dragonfly, Google’s effort to create a censored search engine for the Chinese market that enables state surveillance.
We are among thousands of employees who have raised our voices for months. International human rights organizations and investigative reporters have also sounded the alarm, emphasizing serious human rights concerns and repeatedly calling on Google to cancel the project. So far, our leadership’s response has been unsatisfactory.
